thanks for the query

in our clinic we usually give strocit as a twice daily dose for a month. since your mother has improved significantly it is time to approach the neurologist to stop the drug
however warfarin is a life saving medication, it has to be restarted soon, please approach a multi speciality clinic So that both doctors can take a combined approach on who to re start it
